Today's offering showcases this classic and uncommon mens Omega in rare mint condition. It is all-original down to the even the original waterproofing seal!
It has a timeless style. It is an uncommon version of the reference signed Seamaster on the case back but not on the dial. In design and construction is identical to those signed Seamaster on the dial. In fact, the vast majority of the examples of this reference were branded with the Seamaster moniker on the dial, although a relatively few examples like this one were not.
Its movement is an Omega caliber 1337 quartz mechanism with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone and date and original Omega "Accuset" push button crown for precision setting of the minutes and seconds. Unlike most quartz movements, which have low jewel counts, Omega gave this movement a full 13 jewels.
Its case presents in just short of perfect mint condition. It retains strong lines...our photos couldn't do it justice. Its dial is original and mint. Other than having a very light polishing, it is an unrestored, all-original classic Omega that presents as a 9.7 out of 10.
A Master Watchmaker has just performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery. As one might expect from a watch in this condition, its movement is very clean as well. Photos of the inside available upon request.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
For the finishing touch, it has been meticulously detailed making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
A four decade old Omega that presents essentially like new on the wrist!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and Prince William, and one graced the wrist of President John F. Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
Omega is perhaps best known by watch connoisseurs for its Seamaster line of dive watches. Introduced in 1948, they have been were embraced by water sports enthusiasts and marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
